Abstract: This research addresses the ready-mixed concrete (RMC) vehicle scheduling problem with stochastic transportation time. In the paper, transportation time of RMC vehicle is modelled as stochastic and time-dependent. This study establishes a chance constrained programming model for the ready-mixed concrete vehicle scheduling problem. A genetic algorithm is designed by combining the heuristic and hash function searching strategy. The results show that the proposed algorithm is able to solve the problem effectively. Meanwhile, hash function search strategy increases the execution speed of the presented algorithm.
